Suzuki Motorcycle India today launched an All-New 250cc sports adventure tourer, V-Strom SX in the Indian market. This launch also marked Suzuki Motorcycle India’s entry in the 250cc sports adventure tourer segment.
Under the design concept, “Toughness in a Slender Shell”, V-Strom SX gets its toughness from its rugged, adventure-inspired looks, confidence- inspiring chassis. The slender shell refers to a slim exterior shape owing to the compact engine design that appears to be wrapped in a “protector-like” shell. Its nimble handling and light weight make it simple to maneuver through the city. Its sporty performance brings excitement and thrills across twisty roads making it a lightweight versatile crossover. A well rounded chassis forms the backbone of the V-Strom SX bringing together a feature set suited for riding both on paved and unpaved roads.
The beak design of this sports adventure tourer is inspired by legendary DR-Z racer and DR- BIG off-road models and has been remade specifically for the V-Strom SX. The stylish LED Octagonal shaped headlights provides sleek look and supports the rider in maintaining strong road presence. At the back of the sports adventure tourer, the LED tail lights are highly visible at night.
At the heart, All-New Suzuki V-Strom SX comes with Suzuki Oil-Cooling System (SOCS), highly reliable engine that offers brisk and smooth performance, making it your perfect companion on kinds of roads. The Suzuki Oil Cooling System (SOCS) warms the engine up quickly and keeps it at the optimum temperature. It also contributes to the engine’s overall lightweight and the V-Strom SX’s brisk, nimble feel.
Armed with Suzuki Easy Start System, Suzuki Ride Connect** and USB outlet, V-Strom SX will be rich on rider comfort at all times in all terrains. Suzuki Easy Start System allows the engine to start with a click of a button. The motorcycle is equipped with Suzuki Ride Connect** feature which comes with the Bluetooth® enabled digital console* that lets you sync your mobile phone seamlessly with the Suzuki V-Strom SX to provide features such as turn-by-turn navigation, incoming call, SMS alert and WhatsApp Alert display and missed call***, speed exceeding warning, phone battery level display and estimated time of arrival. A USB outlet on the left side of the instrument cluster is capable of charging a device. It glows blue making it easy to spot and use it even in low light situations.
Speaking on the launch, Mr. Satoshi Uchida, Managing Director, Suzuki Motorcycle India, said, “We feel delighted to announce our entry in the 250cc adventure sports segment with the launch of V-Strom SX. The All-New V-Strom SX has been manufactured to cater to the needs of the riders who like a versatile sports adventure tourer. V-Strom SX will be perfectly suitable for the city and highway riding as well as to explore various kinds of adventure terrains on a motorcycle.
Today, motorcycles have evolved as an extension of its owner’s personality and riders look at their motorcycle as a partner rather than just a vehicle to commute. We are confident that with its all-round capabilities, V-Strom SX will perfectly blend with the latent demands of the Indian riders. All-New 250cc sports adventure tourer has been conceptualized to follow the footsteps of its big brother and make people fall in love with its performance on daily basis, touring capabilities and features.”

V-Strom SX’s piston contributes to increased output and better fuel efficiency. Inheriting this MotoGP technology, this new motorcycle can handle a wide variety of situations, from riding in town to high-speed cruising.
